United worker aided scheme, DEA says

Federal agents made public charges Tuesday against six people accused of operating a drug trafficking organization that imported cocaine from Mexico and distributed it across the Midwest.

The investigation, conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, also revealed that a woman employed by United Airlines working at O'Hare International Airport helped the alleged drug traffickers.

The woman is not charged or named in the complaint. Assistant U.S. Atty. Julie Pekron declined to comment on whether the woman is under investigation or will be charged.


When he and two unidentified men arrived later that day for their flight, the woman harassed Transportation Security Administration screeners who singled out the unidentified men for additional checks.

The woman "told the TSA employees that they were being `racist' in selecting [the unidentified men] for a secondary inspection," Williams wrote.
